I was at the Verizon store and was talking the guy inside, we were talking about all the phones and their features, and he told me that the Razr, and the Maxx have been getting returned like mad because of a degrading battery. The battery starts out, great life, but the battery quickly turns bad, won't charge or even let the phone turn on, so I started considering the Bionic or 4. I came home, hit the internet looking for reports, all I can get is how great the battery life is, but all from initial reports. Now the Razr, if the battery ISN'T terrible, is still my first choice. He might have been trying to coerce me into the insurance for the phone, but he was more suggesting a different phone entirely, recommended the 4 because of how it's the same generation, similar specs, practically the same phone, just keyboard and battery. Any personal information or articles that I missed in my skim? I really want to be proven wrong, the battery is all it's cracked up to be, and will be for the life of the phone, but I am not going to waste my money on a surefire failure.
